Something you might not know about me is that I love oatmeal! I love it! When I was a kid my parents would wake my sister and I up for school. We'd rolled out of bed and got to the kitchen for breakfast and 9 times out of 10 my dad would have a big white ceramic bowl full of steaming hot oats ready for us! I have the best memories of him giving us each a huge scoop in a bowl and my sister and I just pouring maple syrup and brown sugar into the oats! Not until college did I start putting fruits and nuts into my oatmeal and it really hasn't stopped since!

One of my all time favorite things to add to my oatmeal is a good ripe pear! Pears have such a distinct flavor that it adds to the nuttiness of the oats! Although, they don't add that much texture the slight flavor enhancement is worth the addition! I also love to garnish the top of mine with slices of pears for a yummy treat with each bite!

Gluten-Free & Vegan Cranberry Raspberry Doughnuts

I am currently driving to Florida while this post is up and I just have to say, the last shoot for this recipe in my Utah apartment really made me love this recipe more! I grabbed some of the last of these delicious Driscoll's raspberries and fresh local cranberries that are coming into season right in time for the Holidays! The mix of the sweet but tangy flavor from both the berries really added a punch with the nutty nutmeg that is in the doughnuts! All in all this is the perfect doughnut to kick off the holiday season!
